    Phoenix, AZ 85085

    Me and my boyfriend have been here about two months and honestly, this is the best place i have lived. This place really deserves the 100% rating it has! Its nice and quiet, parking is great, the apartment it self really stands out compared to other places in phoenix! The price is fair and i'm proud to call this place my home, its the first apartment I've had (out of three) that really feels like home! Ill be staying here until the day i can buy a house! Great place to live.

  • Overall, I'm very happy with my experience living in Burbank Apts. Namely, all of the staff that work here standout in terms of helpfulness and reliability; they're also extremely friendly and personable. The utilities/services within the building have been reliable since I've lived here, the area provides a ton of entertainment in a walkable distance, and the apartment unit itself was updated with new floors/bathroom prior to me moving in, which is somewhat rare in Boston. Ultimately, after almost three years here, I don't think I could come up with anything negative to say about my experience living here.

  • I have had a wonderful experience living at Crowne on 10th. I love the gym and the business center that has complimentary printing. The pool is wonderful, and the office staff is superb! I am ruined for anywhere else. I can also easily walk/bike to UAB's campus. Crowne on 10th has wonderful landscaping, and is right beside the wonderful George Ward Park. Very pet-friendly as well.

  • Love this place!The pool is awesome and the grounds are extremely well kept. The neighborhood seems very safe and it's just an all around great place. Also, the people in the office are awesome! I have seen them dealing with some rather rude people and they seem to do a very good job staying nice and professional. Great Place to live!

    I am a new resident at this complex, and my experience has been great. The managers and staff are very professional, and helpful. The complex is very quiet. I am enjoying living here, and would absolutely recommend these apartments to anyone.

  • I was very happy at Hampshire: there was plenty of well-lit parking, the complex was always clean, and the staff were always polite and helpful. Most of the residents tend to keep to themselves, and represent diverse age groups (so you never feel like you're in a college dorm or a nursing home) and professions. Story time: I had to break my lease after only a few months of living there and Paula -- the landlady -- was very understanding and explained to me, in simple English, what my options were. She wound up finding someone to take over my lease within the same day I told her I'd have to break it! I was very appreciative for her efforts, as I know this was a lot of hassle in a short time.

  • I have lived here for going on 3 years now and I absolutely love it. The staff has always been very helpful and courteous. If ever I did have a problem, maintenance was there to fix it in a timely manner. I love the new updates within the complex, too! I couldn t imagine living anywhere else!

    I have lived here since August 2012, I enjoy the enviroment and associating with my community neighbors. I have recently renewed my lease and look foward to the next year here.

The resident lounge is great for parties and the big football games.

  • Overall, living in this building is a dream - pool, pet friendly, beautiful building and a great location. If I were to recommend a building in Chinatown or close to Metro center this one would be it. They also offer specials pretty frequently, so I've found it to be affordable as well.

    Montgomery Square

    Portsmouth, VA 23704

    When I tell People I live in Portsmouth I sometimes get a sideways look until they come over. When the get the apartment they still are alittle reluctant to like or dislike it. When they see the apartment I always get "WOW this is so nice", "I never knew this style apartment is in Portsmouth". When they see the size of the apartment, and the bathrooms people are sold on it. :) Thats what sold me, when I saw that bathrooms, and the apt layout. The staff of Montgomery SQ is awesome, they are always nice to me and my wife and willing to go out of there way to assist us in anything we ask. Granted everyone has different taste, and what I like you may not. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for the city life, but maybe not all the drama. You have bars, restaurants, museums, Farmers market on the weekends, the ferry that takes you to Norfolk, that are all walking distance. Montgomery SQ, is honestly the place you want to be. If I have to list a negative the walls are a little thin. You can hear people next to you if they are talking loud or having a get together. The parking as well but, I m just lazy don t feel like walking. The building is secure, each apartment is beautiful, people mind their own business, and the staff is GREAT what more can you ask for! If you need more information email [email protected]

  • It is a very pleasant neighborhood, very quiet, and the rooms are spacious. No problem with parking spaces. The maintenance people are prompt and they do a great job. The staff are very friendly, always with a smile, a ready to assist you.

  • just moved in....

  • These apartments are beautiful.

    Orchard Village

    Omaha, NE 68137

    Living at Orchard Village is the most comfortable home we've ever had (and we've been married 56 years). We downsized from a house in 2005 to move here and have not had one regret. It's a well maintained neighborhood. The staff is always ready to help with any questions. Maintenance is readily available, pleasant and best of all, efficient. We are working on our 9th year and do not plan to move. I would miss the trail and the two parks that are within walking distance.

  • Me and my wife moved in August 2012 Parkwood Pointe apartments. I feel like I'm staying five-star luxury hotel. Specially the kitchen area. The apartment it's so clean. The staff, everyone from administration to maintenance, are effective, efficient, and considerate. They go beyond what is required to run the building. There isn't a thing they wouldn't do for you. They accept deliveries etc. They made our life so much easier. And "Denise" The Property Manager she is extremely professional and she is on top of her game. She is always so pleasant and helpful. That's why I'm still staying here, They made me feel like I am their family. What ever think that I need they respond quickly. I would recommend this Apartment to anyone.

    Pohlig Box Factory

    Richmond, VA 23223

    I lived at the Pohlig Box Factory for a little over a year and it has by far been the best rental experience I've ever had. The staff here is AMAZING! Holly and Dave do an outstanding job and are super friendly. One of the many perks is they will accept your packages and deliver it to your apartment during the day! Overall a great experience and sad to have moved away.
